Published Add your comment

New Bordeaux signing Souleymane Diawara has set his sights on lifting some silverware in France after completing his move from Charlton.

The central defender from Senegal on Wednesday signed a four-year deal with Les Girondins for a reported fee of 4million euros (£2.7m).

He spent last season at Charlton following his move there from Sochaux but after a year in England, he claims he is happy to be back in France, saying: "I chose to leave to go abroad with the aim of discovering another league and other players. I enjoyed England and I had the chance to stay there, but I am happy to be returning to France - especially with Bordeaux."
